BALANCE can be described as a master vibe setter. One could even call her a beat-barista, pressing hand crafted shots of rhythm and bass that bring listeners into movement. Her career began many years ago when a strong passion for hip hop and electronic music and a dangerous curiosity toward the art of ass shaking fused together, illuminating a cleared path for her to DJ-dom. Her journey officially began in 2006 in Los Angeles, through Jam Master Jay's Scratch DJ Academy. Balance began developing the sound mending and vibe blending skills that have since transformed her into a careful scientist of frequency bonding and a humble servant of dancers, head nodders and bar pirates alike. Over the years her sets would continue to reflect a sincere desire to connect deeply with her listeners and to help guide them to their individual destinations. Today, at just five-foot-four and weighing in at the size of a sly tilted grin, Ms. Balance shakes dance floors when she steps on stage - heavily strapped with an arsenal of melting bass, dreamy melodies and a tremendous love for the People. Balance makes the name of the game clear boys and girls: to shake dat ass!
